It’s been six weeks since the Seahawks won the Super Bowl. But sadly, the Seahawks aren’t really the Seahawks anymore. As the past couple of weeks have shown, the champions aren’t exempt from the tolls of the free agency demon.
So far Seattle has lost eight players who have had made an exceptional contribution to the team: Chris Clemons (Jaguars), Clinton McDonald (Buccaneers), Breno Giacomini (Jets), O’Brien Schofield (Giants), Red Bryant (Jaguars), Walter Thurmond (Giants), Brandon Browner (Patriots), and last but not least of those the greatest blow to the champions is the dynamic wide receiver Golden Tate who recently inked with the Detroit Lions. Tate, who was owned in 98 percent of leagues, tallied 64 catches for 898 yards in last season alone. We’re losing out on a great receiver.
A moment of silence for these former Seahawks. These players will truly be missed.
But the 12th man need not to worry. No need to run around, pulling your hair out and screaming “WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?!” because their life belongs to another team. Look at the good side. Now there is a vacancy for wide receiver rookies like Kelvin Benjamin or Odell Beckham Jr. And now there are openings for defensive tackles like Aaron Donald or Timmy Jernigan. This means a younger, more fresh team. That’s always a great thing!
The moral of the article is: Out with the old, in with the new.
